Residential Building Staking, also known as a Site Layout Survey, is the process of interpreting construction plans and marking the location of proposed new structures on the building lot. Building Staking is performed to ensure a project is built according to municipal regulations and/or architectural designs. The staked reference points guide the construction of proposed improvements on the property and will help to ensure the construction project is completed on schedule, on budget and as intended.
